Trifold Valentines Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have a trifold Globe shape Valentines card featuring the Pinpoint Burst heart die.  Did you know you can heat foil any dies!  The fold will stick where the metal touches the paper.  Memory Box has a lot of different dies that cut or emboss on the paper.  Look through your stash and see what you can heat foil.  Just follow the same instructions as regular folding. 

9869DF66-0E63-4285-B743-B9AA7736DE7D_1_201_a

Card base:

Die cut the largest die from the Nested Globe die set 5 times from heavy weight card stock. For the windows take 1 Globe die cut and die cut the 4th largest die in the center.  Remove the center, leaving the die in place.  Take the next Globe die cut and temporary tape it to the front panel die cut.  Repeat the process for the next 2 die cut.  Leaving 1 die cut as is. for the back panel.  Next stencil the window panels with the Leafy Row stencil and Fresh Ink Pink Lemonade ink.  I used a stencil blending brush heavy for the leafs and then remove the stencil.  Lightly blend with the same ink over all the panels, including the back panel. .  To create a hinge for the panels cut 2 strips of white card stock to 3" x 1/2".  Next score down the center at 1/4".

Window centers:

Die cut the Willow Globe from a light pink paper from the Berry Red pad and from vellum.  Glue together along the outside rim.  Do NOT glue the leaves together.  Die cut the Heart Streamer Globe die set from a red paper from Berry Red pad.  Die cut the heart dies from the Heart Streamer Globe die set from a shiny gold paper from the Vintage Pastel Mirror pad.  Glue the hearts to the streamers, front and back.

Foiled Heart:

Gold heat foil the Pinpoint Burst Heart from a dark red paper from the Berry Red pad. secure the die to the foil and paper.It is the same process as you would a normal foil plate.  I used a Gemini Jr foil machine and it has a heat and cut plate option.  If your foil machine does not just heat foil the heart first then run through as a regular die cut.

Sentiment:

Stamp Happy Valentine's Day from the Big and Little Valentines clear stamp set .on white card stock using Fresh Ink Tomato Red. Trim down to small strips.

Assembly:

Take 2 window panels for the front and glue in the Willow Globe die cuts into the backside of the window.  Take 1 of the hinges and add glue to 1 side of the score line and place on the left side of  inside of the back window panel for the front..  Make sure the hinge faces down with the hinge folding towards the back.  Glue on the top of the window panel.  Repeat this process for the inner fold window panel but put the hinge on the left side of the panel.  One the back full panel adhere the foiled heart.  Adhere Happy to top of the heart and Valentine's Day to the bottom.  Adhere the inside panel first to the left side of the back of the base panel, lining up the bottoms. Let glue dry and then fold the panel open and closed a few times.  Glue the front panel hinge to the left side, back of the back panel.  Let glue dry and open and close a few times.

For You Posh Script Card Duo
by Angie Cimbalo



Hello and welcome! I have 2 cards made from one embossed panel as shown above!
I took the Memory Box "Blooming" 3D embossing folder and a Tim Holtz brayer and Versamark Ink and inked up the debossed side of the folder and ran it through my die cutting machine. I used the "Fresh Aqua Collection" paper pad and chose a dark teal card stock. Then I put clear embossing powder on it and heating it with my heat gun.

Next I used a dauber to add white ink to the raised areas. Here's a look at the finished embossed panel.



Next I took scissors and cut it into 2 sections as seen below:



I trimmed down the panels to fit on the sides of card bases and created two cards.

Here's a look at card number one:



The sentiment for both card is the brand new "For You Posh Script" cut from white and from the darkest teal paper from the Vintage Pastel Mirror. Here's a close up look at card number one:




Here's a look at the second card:



And here's a close up look at second card:



I love it when you can make two cards with one panel! And I really love how these turned out. The "Blooming 3D" embossing folder is one my all time favorites and it goes perfectly with the newly released word die.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love-ly Hearts and Peony Card For You for Any Occasion
by Anne Thompson

I'm loving everything in the newest 2023 Valentines collection.  You can find it here.  Today's card features lots of hearts and a peony and plaids, of course.

IMG_3999-ink

  • I started with a top-fold white A2 note card and added a pink and blue plaid paper from SPRING PLAID PP1012 to nearly cover the whole front, leaving a very narrow white strip around the outer edge.
  • Next I cut the PINPOINT BURST HEART 94639 and the HEART RING STACK 94662 from a pink mirror card paper in the VINTAGE PASTEL MIRROR PAD FP1002.

IMG_4004-ink

  • I used a glue pen to add the Heart Ring stack at the top edge of the card. 
  • I used Scor-Tape to add the Pinpoint Burst Heart at a bit of an angle and over the bottom edges of some of the other hearts.
  • Next I cut the LUXE PEONY 94714 twice, once from a pink plaid and once from a blue plaid, both papers from the Spring Plaid paper pad.

IMG_4005-ink

  • I used the picture on the envelope to help me figure out how to put all the little pieces in place (I think I came close), mixing the two plaids to create the peony.  I used Glue Dots to assemble the flower and I tucked the extra pieces in the envelope for another project.
  • I decided to use some purple plaid leaves I had already cut that were in the envelope with the EXQUISITE LEAF SET dies 94664.  

IMG_4001-ink

  • I used a Glue Dot to add the leaves under the peony and popped the peony up with a large foam dimensional dot in the center of the heart.
  • I chose the FOR YOU POSH SCRIPT 94709 for the sentiment and cut it from the scraps left from making the peony.  I used a glue pen to add the detailed letters onto the background and then used glue to add the sentiment to the bottom left on the card front.

IMG_4006-ink

  • To finish the card I added three blue-pink WINTER FANTASY FAIRY GEMSTONES GEM102 to the right side of the card.

IMG_4003-ink

This design could be made in any number of color combinations and could be used for so many different occasions, even though the featured dies are from the 2023 Valentines collection.  In whites and grays and silver this could be a card for Winter Solstice; in reds and greens and white it could be a Christmas card; in blues and white and gold--Hanukkah; in champagne/gold/silver--Happy New Year...I'm sure you can think of lots more possibilities.  

Happy crafting!

Snowflake Gift Tags
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I just love the snowflakes and pastel colors this season.  I cannot stay away from it with all the matching papers and beautiful dies.  Today I have a snowflake gift tag design that is easily repeatable for mass production of tags.  The Delicate Pastel Glitter paper and Vintage Pastel Mirror paper match along with the pastel jewels making it easy to create.

208C1736-1E71-43FD-B329-EC0C6EFAB442_1_201_a

Tag base:

Die cut white card stock with the 2nd largest Nested Globes set.  Die cut the next smaller size from a light colored plaid design from the Jolly Christmas papers.  Adhere the 2 together and punch a hole in the top center.

3AD2BC9C-F82A-494B-819C-46F06CE2479D

Snowflakes:

 Choose 3 different colors that match from the Pastel Glitter paper and Vintage Pastel Mirror paper. Die cut 1 set of the Starburst Snowflake Discs and 2 set Feathery Snowflake Discs from each paper.  Make sure to use a cutting plate a the papers are thick and the dies intricate. Discard the little cut outs as it will be easier to use Fairy Jewels to fill in.  Take the inter snowflakes out and pop them in the matching color of the different type of paper.  

31B773F5-9FDF-4E7A-9B63-ADDF5D43E6F9

Sentiment:

Stamp "Holiday Greetings" from the Festive Christmas Greetings set on white card stock.  I used a stamp platform and a smaller piece of paper that I can move every 1/2 to stamp several sentiments in a row.  Die cut each sentiment using the smallest die from the Slim Basic Rectangles Layers set.  Trim off the one end to decided length with scissors.

A7B8E07B-0022-4340-BD9C-98E8F4A8891D

Assembly:

Adhere the snowflakes in the 3 different sized onto the tags.  Add matching Pastel Fairy Jewels around the cut out to hide the plaid paper.  If you don't have the Fairy Jewels the Fairy Sugar glue also works!  I did run out of Fairy Jewels and needed to color the clear with an alcohol marker.  Add the sentiment to the right side of the tag.  Add some matching twine through the hole to adhere to the present.  You can add your message to the back of the tag.

Merry and Bright Mini Slimline
by Angie Cimbalo



Hello and welcome! It's Angie here today with this mini slimline holiday card featuring the new "Watercolor Poinsettia Floral die" with the previously released "Slimline Pinpoint Burst Plate" craft die 94557

 
After using the pinpoint die on white card, I took a red ink pad and put it directly onto the card stock and rubbed it all over - this made it look like it was red card stock with white pinpoint dots.  Here's a closer look at that part and of the actual poinsettia die.  It's a layering die with lots of pieces to help your flower look very realistic.  I used pink, yellow and green glitter paper from "Festive Glitter Pad" GP1006 and the  red "Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad" FP1003.



The strip under the sentiment is actually cut with one of the dies from "Wood Grain Planks" craft die 94565.   The sentiment "Merry and Bright" is from the newly released "Sweet Christmas" clear stamp set CL5283.  I heat embossed it on black card stock and then cut it into a square then rounded the corners.

Here's one last look at my card:

 
I hope you like my card for today!  Be sure to check out all the amazing dies, paper, and stamps from Memory Box!

Merry Christmas Trio
by Trina Pham

9102579F-F114-489C-B762-16DA4EA1B3C4

Hello everyone.  Christmas is just a little over a month away!  With that said, I am sharing an easy way to create a set of CAS (clean and simple) Christmas cards using products from the 2022 Christmas collection.  

The process was the same for all three cards.  Started by ink smooshing a piece of mixed media paper with diluted Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet distress inks.  Die cut all images from this piece then added clear shimmer to them for some sparkle.  Die cut the images twice from thick white paper to stack for dimension.  Die cut the sentiment from Vintage Pastel Mirror paper and stacked on top of two white ones for dimension.  Assembled so onto white woodgrain paper to finish.  

DB0147A8-313D-4951-B63E-7FC5B2245D3F

On this first card and just like the large skates in my last post, the Classic Pair of Skates were laced with white baker’s twine.  The heels were die cut from silver metallic shimmer paper and the blades from silver mirror paper.

The next card features the Alpine Snowflakes.

6259FE30-2955-43DB-9D28-9DB112F34348

And last but not least, the third card features the Little Trees die.  These are adorable, don’t you think?

And that’s it for my set of cards.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful weekend.
